    goals are to continue to break apart the black boxes of substrates and organisms We apply traditional as well as cutting edge molecular techniques to further characterize both DOM composition as well as the microbial community that grown and transform these substrates The ultimate goal of this research is to establish linkages between microbial community composition and biogeochemical processes Selected Publications Nelson C Carlson C 2012 Tracking differential incorporation of dissolved organic carbon types among diverse Sargasso Sea bacteria using stable isotope probing Environ Microbiol 14 1500 1516 doi 10 1111 j 1462 2920 2012 02738 x Halewood ER Carlson CA Brzezinski MA Reed DC Goodman J 2012 The annual cycle of organic matter partitioning and its availability to bacteria across the Santa Barbara Channel continental shelf Aquatic Microbial Ecology in press Parsons R Breitbart M Lomas M Carlson C 2012 Ocean time series reveals recurring seasonal patterns of virioplankton dynamics in the northwestern Sargasso Sea ISME Journal 6 273 284 doi 10 1038 ismej 2011 101 Carlson CA Hansell DA Tamburini C 2011 DOC persistence and its fate after export within the ocean interior In Jiao N Azam F Sanders S eds Microbial Carbon Pump in the Ocean Science AAAS Business Office Washington DC pp 57 59 10 1126 science opms sb0001 Goldberg S J C A Carlson M Brzezinski N B Nelson and D A Siegel 2011 Systematic removal of neutral sugars within dissolved organic matter across ocean basins Geophysical Research Letters 38 L17606 doi 10 1029 2011GL048620 Nelson C Alldredge A McCliment E Amaral Zetler L Carlson C 2011 Depleted dissolved organic carbon and distinct bacterial communities in the water column of a rapid flushing coral reef ecosystem ISME Journal 5 1374 1387 doi 10 1038 ismej 2011 12 Carlson C A D A Hansell N B

    development of a broad foundation in ecology and evolution and appreciation for interdisciplinary approaches to education and research It also allows students to develop depth in specific subdisciplines including population and community ecology ecosystems ecology limnology and biological oceanography ecological physiology evolution population genetics and organismal biology Faculty in the Department are strong in both field and laboratory based approaches and most combine both in their research programs Graduate students most of them Ph D students are engaged in research with faculty in EEMB We are committed to providing a stimulating research and educational environment with the goal of helping our graduate students become top tier scientists working on cutting edge problems Since graduate training is largely an apprenticeship system and students accepted into EEMB must have a faculty sponsor before they can be admitted we encourage you to explore this website fully and contact individual faculty whose research programs interest you by e mail or phone Faculty are always interested in contacts from potential graduate students We also encourage you to visit the campus and check out our exciting programs first hand Graduate Overview M A Degree Ph D Degree How to Apply Financial Support FAQs Resources Visitor Information

  • Doctor of Philosophy Degree | Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology | UC Santa Barbara
    division undergraduate class Preparation is done throughout the period of foundation building via graduate coursework participation in seminars and reading in advanced textbooks and independent reading Students should plan to spend at least a few weeks of intense directed preparation immediately before the exam Exams differ in structure and format open vs closed book time limits etc but they are all designed to test for the same high level of understanding and performance Failure Students who fail a written exam must successfully complete the same or an alternative exam approved by their committee by the end of the following academic quarter Students who fail two written exams will be dropped from the program While failing an exam is unusual conditional passes are fairly common A conditional pass is given when the overall exam is satisfactory but some aspect of it is weak In such cases the student will be expected do more reading and then revise the weak section Until this is done the exam is considered incomplete Penalties for Falling Off Schedule If written exams are not completed within 2 years the student will receive a reminder from the Graduate Advisor that they are falling off schedule After 3 years the student will receive a warning that they are off schedule and may be at risk of being dropped from the program if they do not complete the exams within the next year Students failing to successfully complete their written examinations within 4 years after enrolling in the Ph D program may be dropped from the program Oral Exams The oral examination is to be completed within three years after enrolling in the Ph D program What to Expect The oral exam is usually a broad based exam testing a student s knowledge and ability to work with material in the basic science areas relevant to their research The oral exam committee will generally be the student s dissertation committee In most cases the oral exam will begin with a student s presentation of their dissertation proposal and the questioning may spin off that However a student should be prepared for the questioning to get very far afield from their specific proposal Students should expect to find themselves questioned about things that they don t know the answer to possibly including issues where no one knows the answer Evaluating how a student handles uncertainty is an important part of evaluating whether they are ready to be advanced to candidacy for the Ph D Advancing to Candidacy After passing the oral exam a student will be Advanced to Candidacy That has two possible effects on a student s life First a student becomes eligible for doctoral candidate borrowing privileges at the Davidson Library It also means that non resident supplemental tuition will be waived for three years for international students Since EEMB students generally don t pay their own fees this may not seem important but whatever source is supporting them departmental funds grants etc may benefit by allowing resources
